P90X Day 12: Legs & Back + Ab Ripper X

M isn't working this week (she reports for hospital duty every other week -- seven days on, seven days off), and joined me for Legs & Back. This being my second time through this particular workout, I was definitely more familiar with the exercises, and the frequent transitions between pull-ups and leg resistance moves went much more smoothly.

What really helped , however, was having a workout partner. I'm finding it much easier to get motivated when my wife is watching me huff and puff my way through wall squats and pull ups. After almost a decade of marriage, I still want to impress her, and not just on those occasions when my plumbing skills are required to unclog the toilet.
